Speaking during his visit to County Meath, Minister O'Brien said: "The completion of these 96 social homes means permanent, secure housing for families and individuals in Dunshaughlin, making a real difference to those people's quality of life. The Government remains focused on investing more in social and affordable housing, as is evident by our support for Meath County Councils development in Ashbourne.  

"It was a real joy to meet and speak with the new residents of The Willows and I want to commend Clúid Housing and Meath County Council, who, supported by my Department, have delivered this fantastic development. 

"I also want to pay particular thanks to Meath County Council who, it is clear to see, are working hard on their very ambitious delivery targets."
